    Hi Joanne good video maybe slow down a bit…..

  10. Lit&Elite says:

    nice video joanne, but by the way you dont have to unistall them like this

    you can use ddu and boot into safe mode, it will automatically delete all nvidia drivers, both ways work!

    and i am upgrading from 650 to 1070, i need to remove all my drivers right ? and swap them

    and can you please make a video of how to change cpu paste please ? Much appericiated :3

    Thanks for your video joanne, its really helpful!

    Hey, realize this is an old video, but hopefully you still check your old videos for comments. I'm doing a step up program through EVGA to upgrade from my current GTX 980ti to a 1080 card. Do I still need to uninstall the drivers since it's not a GTX 900s series before physically removing the GPU? Or is it all good?

    Appreciate any guidance, thank you!

    okay so I got the butt plug out and I'm about to insert the T1000.
    Quick question: Do I reset the blender first? I'm just kidding, Joanne!! :3
    Nice tutorial for the newbies out there.

    I Switched from Nvidia to AMD..I uninstalled the Nvidia drivers from the control panel then I manually deleted  leftover files in the registry that said Nvidia..Then they seemed to magically come back. So I downloaded DDU and deleted  Nvidia again. Checked registry and there was still Nvidia residual crap lurking in there. So I deleted again..Put my AMD R9 390X in my PC then went on AMD website..Downloaded AMD drivers for the card..Turned out the card sucked so I ended up going back with Nvidia and had to do the whole thing again..Lol..Them GPU drivers from AMD and Nvidia can be pesky little things to completely get rid of.

    Oh god, Joanne, you're going full Linus on that poor MSI card, yanked out and smashing it's sides. RIP in GeForce.

  17. mclaine33 says:

    Joanne I'm surprised you didn't mention DDU Uninstaller. I use that all the time. It is much safer and easier than going into the registry to remove stuff.

  18. kolbondakob says:

    I accidentally stuck an egg in my graphic card slot… any tips for overclocking my egg?

  19. Opy says:

    DDU + CCleaner

    Thanks for this video, I'm a novice with PC's and it helps to "soak" up all the basic info I can. If its in your scheduling and helps your channel grow, simple vids like these are good for the novice. Thanks again.

  31. Mash Rien says:

    Missed mentioning the PCI-E power connectors and the obnoxious slot tab to release the card, but otherwise loved it. 🙂

  32. William Cruz says:

    joanne you're so beautiful and smart!

  33. Raymond Lee says:

    Holy cow this is literally what i needed!

  34. LittleMikey says:

    So, currently I'm using a pretty outdated Asus GTX670. How much of a performance increase would I get if I went to something like a 970, and is an upgrade like that even worth it if I don't upgrade my CPU/motherboard as well?

  35. Scott Babcock says:

    🙂 great video, I had no idea you had to delete the registry files thanks
